When Cosmopolitan Korea asked Wonwoo about “the tongue thing,” he immediately became flustered.
As the members laughed, Wonwoo tried to explain, “I have really dry lips. My body is really dry.”
Wonwoo was doing it on purpose but only to improve his vocals. Wonwoo said, “It’s dry, so I have to wet my lips to sing.” For the group’s title track, “Left & Right”, Wonwoo took it a bit further.
He’d gone viral for moving his tongue fast enough to match the song’s beat. Wonwoo added, “But I guess I did it really fast. Both sides.”
It seems like Wonwoo’s such a professional that he can match his habits to suit their title tracks.
Solving the mystery behind Wonwoo’s habit turned out to be funnier than anyone expected.
Check out the members laughing about it here.
